About the Event

Info for Riders

The Gravel Gran Fondue is an unsupported, unmarshalled adventure on the quiet roads, byways and bridleways of the Peak District National Park.

Riders have the choice of riding both or either of the days – there is one entry but the choice of how much you ride is entirely up to you.

Day one heads out from Bakewell and explores some of the areas many bridleways, byways and quiet roads and finishes at the village of Hartington. The approximate distance is 100 km. 

Day two returns to Bakewell from Hartington. It is shorter than day one at only 60 km

It is up to riders to arrange their overnight accommodation in Hartington. We all have different expectations and budgets about where we want to spend the night – this way we can keep the costs down and you can stay where you would like to.

Based on the reliability ride format, our aim is to get riders to think for themselves and not only test their riding skills but their ability to navigate a course.

The route is suitable for gravel, cyclocross and mountain bikes with a minimum of 32 mm tyres. We've tried to pick a route that is rideable whatever the weather that covers varied terrain. We've 30 years experience of riding around this area so hopefully we'll be able to show you some of our favourite trails that we've found over the years.

We have purposely not included any feed stations at the event. We would rather you bought food and drink on route to help our local small businesses and contribute to the communities you are riding through.

However there will be tea, coffee and cake available at the end of day one. We think you'll have earned it by then !

We'll send you a GPX file with the route details a few days before the event start. This way we can keep you in suspense as long as possible.
